Abstract

As an integral part of their occupational health care system, companies may be interested in the future disease-specific mortality patterns in their workforce. The mortality pattern is characterised by deaths from different competing disease groupings e.g. cancer of the respiratory system, cardiovascular disease, etc. In addition to monitoring the health of the workforce, mortality pattern predictions are central to the estimation of future pension, insurance or compensation liability.
